U.S. District Court Judge Richard Leon said Monday,
December 16, 2013 that the National Security Agency's bulk collection of phone
records violates the Constitution's ban on unreasonable searches but put his
decision on hold, pending a near certain government appeal.

Judge Richard Leon is an appointee of former
President George W. Bush. He said the two men – Larry Klayman and Charles
Strange –  are likely to be able to show
that their privacy interests outweigh the government’s interest in collecting
the data. “The court concludes that plaintiffs have standing to challenge
the constitutionality of the government’s bulk collection and querying of phone
record metadata, that they have demonstrated a substantial likelihood of
success on the merits of their Fourth Amendment claim (of unlawful search and
seizure), and that they will suffer irreparable harm absent…relief,” Leon
